Centre for International Minerals and Energy Law Research Opens at UQ


Minerals and energy law will be the focus of a new research centre launched by the University of Queensland.

The Centre for International Minerals and Energy Law (CIMEL) will research legal issues faced by the minerals, petroleum and energy industries, such as barriers to development, land access issues, workplace safety and industry impacts on communities and the environment. As part of this work, CIMEL researchers will examine other nations’ approaches to resources regulation.

CIMEL Director Dr Tina Hunter said the Centre would also examine the overlap between State and Federal laws relating to these industries.

“This research will provide law makers, regulators and legal professionals with the information they need to make informed decisions about the future of these industries in Australia,” she said.
